Celebrities are still going on Kickstarter, asking for your money to fund their pet projects ... and now, bonus! They're getting money from other rich, famous people in the process, at least in one case. Spike Lee is trying to use the crowdfunding site to make his next movie, and Vulture reports that Steven Soderbergh has pledged $10,000 to the attempt. At that donation level (designated as "For All Playa-Playas"), Lee takes the funder out to dinner and a Knicks game (courtside, of course).
"I'm giving a huge shout-out to my man Steven Soderbergh for the support and I'm really humbled with Steven coming on board and doing that," Lee tells NextMovie. He has currently raised $132,648 of his $1.25 million goal, and he has 28 days left. In related news, for those of you dying to know how James Franco's Indiegogo campaign is going: It was supposed to end a week ago, but by last Tuesday he hadn't even raised half of his goal, so he extended the deadline by two weeks, Celebuzz reports. There are eight days left in the campaign, and Franco has raised $253,753 of his $500,000 goal. (Read more Steven Soderbergh stories.)
